Beautiful resort in the middle of nowhere, but great place to just relax. While the property (lovely and clean) amenities (generous) and hotel staff (professional and pleasant), just avoid the restaurant where the service is half-hearted and sometimes outright unpleasant, and food is even worse (the cursing chef should have been a clue!). Drive to Ragusa Ibla for lunch or dinner. Breakfast was fine and ample. Good location to explore the various lovely towns in the area (Ragusa, Modica, Scicle, Marina di Ragusa).

It's a hotel for honeymooners or those who can stay outside of civilisation where they can relax. Quite modern and expansive. Lobby, bar and confernence rooms give you the impression of a much bigger property. Service at the restaurant where we had dinner on the first evening was absolutely disastrous, with the staff having no clue about the service. The restaurant is also not connrecetd dierctly with the main hotel. It appears that staff needs some more training though as in most hotels in Italy, they are very polite and try to be helpful. There is no outside view from the room to write home about unless you think of slightly grassy fields as relaxing and peaceful. Nice facilites for swimming, gym etc. Good service at breakfast though it is rather unbalanced- with countless sweets confectionary-I could not find a croissant that was not sstuffed with sinful calorific and tasty stuffing. It has the potential of becoming a 5-star in my eyes, if service level is improved. its location could be excellent for many though not great for equal numebr of people because of its isolation from the city

Room Tip: Since the view is not much, I would prefer a room facing the pool

This is a modern , clean hotel that has a conference center and a large dining room. It reminds me of a Holiday Inn Crown Plaza. Except for the views of wheat fields and round hay bales you could be anywhere, The rooms are very plain and the amenities non-expensive. You would be fine staying there but it is not memorable.The restaurant has some fine dishes but they are rushed with not enough help and my meat came raw. When it was sent back it came back gray.The staff tries very hard and is pleasant. The breakfast is fine.

Room Tip: It doesn't matter, the whole area is dead.

Trip Advisor reviews were stellar, and that is why we chose this location. But on arriving we were faced with disappointment after disappointment. Be advised that it is VERY isolated, with no other restaurants for miles. The rooms and decor were in poor condition, with moldy shower, chipped tile, paint splotches on the walls. There was bird poop on all the chairs at the pool. The bed is ULTRA hard - I had to take cushions off the couch to be able to sleep. I will commend the management on allowing us to stay just one night and cancel our second night, upon which we changed our lodging to Modica.. The front desk staff were quite nice and helpful.

What a beautiful ultra modern hotel. Peaceful setting in the country. We enjoyed a bottle of local wine before dinner in the outdoor patio before dinner. Reasonable prices. Our dinner was pre-selected by our tour company, and was wonderful. Breakfast was delicious as well. No trouble with AC/heat, as we traveled in October. For sure, would stay here again !

This hotel is a 4.5 rating. The rooms were very spacious and modern with a separate shower and tub and balcony. Room is 5 star. Breakfast was 5 star. Dinner was 4 star with nice ambiance and OK food. No free internet. English TV channels available. The room was very hot on arrival 30 C and the AC struggled to cool the room to a decent temp for sleeping. Ofcourse we could not cool the room while we went to dinner as the AC only works when you insert the key in the slot after entering the room. Nice outdoor pool. Bathrobes in the room were handy to wear to the pool. The hotel personnel were very nice and helpful.
The beds and pillows could be softer.
The hotel is outside of town with free parking. Excellent base for touring.

Room Tip: If you go in warmer months ask for a second key so you can keep the AC working otherwise the spaciou...

The hotel is quite spectacular, with the main part of the building being constructed some 4 years ago. Rooms are large with views either on the pool area or fields. Breakfast is served from 7am to 10am which includes a large table full of different cakes and croissants. However, if you leave too late for breakfast, you might end up without your favourite bread/ham/fruits given that once any dish is finished off by other guests, this is not replaced by a new one. The hotel restaurant serves good food which is affordable. Overall, I enjoyed the luxuries of the hotel, however we did not have a car and so we could not go for walks in the city centre or marina by night.
